Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan says that his upcoming film
Players, which is an official remake of 2003 Hollywood
film The Italian Job, is much different from action
thriller Dhoom as director duo Abbas-Mustan have given a
different twist to its script.
Talking to PTI reporter in Bangalore, Abhishek Bachchan said,
"Players and Dhoom are two different films -
Dhoom was on cops-robbers face-off and all the main
characters in Players are thieves. However, the genre of
both the films is the same. Both films are action-thrillers, but
director-duo Abbas-Mustan have given a different treatment to
Apart from Abhishek, Players boasts of big names such
as Bobby Deol, Bipasha Basu, Sonam Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh.
The entire star cast had undergone physical training to atone the
body to the requirement of the roles they were playing. Most of the
stunts have been done by the artists themselves.
Besides, Deol and Basu's characters were completely new, which
the Hollywood film did not have. Though initially it was planned as
a Diwali release, it had been delayed since they realised it would
take more time to complete the film as the story demanded extensive
filming of action scenes, Abhishek said. "Therefore we decided on a
January 6 release," he added.
